If you are excited to make a huge impact with your career, like moving fast and working on a variety of different tasks and feel motivated by new challenges then apply for Charity Entrepreneurship Incubation Program.

The Charity Entrepreneurship Incubation Program is a two-month, cost-covered training program that gives a small cohort of talented peoples from all over the world everything they need to launch a field-leading charity:

  • The necessary training.
  • Co-founder matching.
  • A well-connected and collaborative community.
  • An evidence-based and cost-effective intervention idea.
  • Seed funding to get started.

Every year, their research team dedicates thousands of hours to analyzing hundreds of ideas, finding the top 5-6 intervention ideas for new charities to implement. This ensures that participants in the Incubation Program can successfully launch charities that the world truly needs.

They prioritize

  • Cost-effectiveness;
  • Convergent scientific evidence;
  • Exceptional levels of expected impact.

Safety Net – Stipends

  • During the Program
    • They provide:
      • Stipends to cover your living costs during the Incubation Program (e.g., rent, wifi, food, childcare). The stipends are around £2,000 per month, based on participants’ needs and adjusted accordingly.
      • Travel and board costs for the 2 weeks in-person in London.
  • After the Program
    • If for any reason you will not be able to start a charity they provide:
      • Career mentorship (the track record for connecting non-founder participants to research grants, related jobs, and other pathways to impact is near 100%).
